PREACHER'S PEN | Pastor Jeff Spencer

Then Pilate took Jesus and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. They came up to him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and struck him with their hands... So he delivered him over to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. - John 19:1-3, 16-18

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. - 2 Corinthians 5:21

24 HOUR PING PONG-A-THON

This weekend (Friday 26th - Saturday 27th October) we held our annual 24 Hour Ping Pong-A-Thon. We had a fantastic turnout and a great time was had by all.

If you would like to sponsor the event to help combat slavery (particularly sexual slavery) around the world, you can do so for the next two weeks. Head to pingpongathon.com/craigmore to donate or speak to Josh Blieschke. Thank you.

1. Pick up a slip from the Welcome Desk 

2. Fill it out 

3. Return it to the KELLY pigeon hole this week. 

(Those who have a heart for kids, please consider signing up for our Kids activities)

If you can’t physically volunteer for the day, but still want to put support the event, we are looking for SPONSORS for some of our activities. We’d love to offer the following activities at a low rate to our community or ideally FREE if possible: 

- An Animal Petting Zoo

- A Bouncy Castle

- A Donut Machine

- Face painting and Animal Balloon making

Please feel free to see Amy or Andrew Kelly if you have any questions or would like to know more about the day. Looking forward to serving alongside you all.

CYC CAMP SPONSORSHIPS

It’s that time of year again when Amy Day is looking for people who would like to sponsor campers to attend the summer camps at CYC El Shaddai. It allows children to go to camp who would otherwise not be able to afford to go.

One of our own young people in our fellowship has been able to attend camp for the past 9 years thanks to the generosity of those who have given throughout the years. She has blossomed in her faith and is now giving back and mentoring other young campers coming through. This is an example of how your giving will have eternal benefits. 

If you have a child who would like to go, but you are unable to afford the camp fees, please feel free to contact me to see if we can help send your child to camp.

CROSS & CROWN YOUTH - CAMP REWIND

Thank you for your support of our Youth Camp at El Shaddai Camping Centre over the long weekend. We wouldn’t have been able to run the camp without your financial support and prayers. We ended up with 35 people attending camp, which was the exact number of people we needed without extra costs, and the amount of money donated by the church was enough to cover all of the extra costs.

We felt very blessed to see how the Lord provided so richly through the support of the church family at Craigmore.

We had a great time together playing messy games, giant swing, storm the lantern, an amazing race, and other activities.

We enjoyed times of worship together and being challenged in our devotion time, focusing on if we as leaders could turn back time, what we wish we knew in our Christian walk. We also ran a Q&A session on the Sunday night where the youth had the opportunity to ask questions about God and what was on their heart.

We believe the Lord really used the time away camp to impact the youth’s hearts and attitudes. We are looking forward to how what was learnt on camp will affect their lives and walks with God.

BOOK DONATIONS

The creche is looking for donations of Bible Story books for toddlers. If anyone has any Bile story books they are willing to donate, please bring them into the church.

GAVIN & JANET PETERSEN

Our missionaries, Gavin and Janet, need our help in a very specific way. Their 20 year old car is becoming unreliable and is continually requiring maintenance. Due to the very high cost of vehicles in Portugal, we are opening a Car Fund for the Petersen’s.

A target of $30,000 has been set to allow for the purchase of a reliable vehicle suitable for ministry. Donations can be sent directly to CCC's bank account or placed in our weekly offerings (mark envelope “Petersen Car Fund”).

We are also notifying AMT of this opportunity for others to support the Petersen’s but it would be an added blessing to the Petersens to see a substantial proportion come from their home church

THANK YOU!

from Sharon Bigwood

I would like to thank my church family for your recent prayers, messages, calls and flowers following my emergency surgery. A big thank you to those who provided us with meals whilst I was recovering, this was a wonderful (yummy) blessing to me and my family.

My recovery is going really well and your support during this time has been greatly appreciated. I give thanks to God for those He has brought to Craigmore and the personal blessing you are to me.

In Christian love Sharon Bigwood

PREACHER'S PEN

with Phil Emery

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. John 16:24

As Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have the huge privilege of being able to go directly to our Heavenly Father, asking Him for the things we need. And according to this verse, we will receive what we ask for.

Thank you Lord for Your love, Your mercy and Your grace that is given freely to us everyday and thank you for the assurance we see in John 16:24, that you definitely answer our prayers.

__________

CRECHE HELP WANTED

As a church we run a creche during our 10:30am Family Service on Sunday mornings so that parents in the church are able to sit in and be involved in the service while our volunteers keep their babies/toddlers entertained. But, we need more volunteers to help!

YOUTH CAMP DONATIONS

Running a camp is an amazing opportunity to build deeper relationships with the youth, however, it does come with it’s costs. The camp cost is $100 this year, but in reality it does end up costing more than that. In order to keep the costs down for the youth who want to come we are looking for anyone who would be willing to donate towards the running of youth camp this year.

If you would like to donate towards please put in an envelope and place in the offering OR transfer to the Church Account and change the description to ‘YC Donation’
